Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 55 | Power: 45 | Run: 45 | Arm: 55 | Field: 50 | Overall: 45

Day 3 of the 2018 Draft was a busy day in the Alexander household. Blaze Alexander was an 11th-round pick by the D-backs out of IMG Academy in Florida who got $500,000 to sign. His older brother, coming off a fine junior college season at the State College of Florida, went nine rounds later and got $125,000 to join the Braves. The older Alexander had a huge professional debut, which included considerable time in the Class A Advanced Florida State League, putting him firmly on the prospect map. That momentum was stalled when he needed elbow surgery in late April, though he did return in early July.

Right out of the gate, Alexander showed an advanced feel to hit and a good understanding of the strike zone. He's at least an above-average hitter with a chance for more if he shows he can replicate what he did in his first pro summer. During his debut, Alexander used the middle of the field and left-center extremely well, focusing on contact. He had more of a pull approach as a junior college player and if he can find some balance between the two, his raw power will show up more consistently as well.

A fringy runner, Alexander is far from a base-clogger, and he has enough range and agility to go along with a strong arm to profile well at third, though he did see a lot of time at first base after his return from injury. The Braves think they might have a Draft steal here, with Alexander having the chance to be an impact corner bat in the future.
